FAQ: About Taxes in Chicago


Vehicle taxes are based on where you live, not where you buy.

Are you hesitant to purchase a car in Chicago because of the higher tax rate? Unlike other retail stores in Chicago, purchasing a car is different. When purchasing a car, you pay taxes based on where the car is registered, not where the dealership you purchased from is. So if you don't live in Chicago, you don't pay the additional city tax.

About Taxes on your Ford or Lincoln Vehicle in Chicago

When looking for your next Ford or Lincoln vehicle, price and financing are important factors in the decision for drivers in Chicago. It's important to know what gets built into a vehicle's price. Taxes are indeed a piece that is built into what you pay, but we here at Fox Ford Lincoln want to ease minds in Lincoln Park, Logan Square, Lakeview and Bucktown.

We don't want you to worry about Chicago's higher tax rates, because they only apply to those living in Chicago. Unlike different products at other Chicago stores, the taxes you pay on your vehicle are determined by where the vehicle is registered, not where the vehicle was bought. So if you don't live in Chicago... you don't pay Chicago taxes! Simple as that.
